Coco Struts for a Cure

While I was in Toronto, I had the pleasure of attending an amazing event for a great cause - Strut For a Cure. The girl behind the event is Erika, a 12 year old girl with a big heart and a supermodel cousin. Coco Rocha needs no introduction. In a short period of 5 years, she has made herself a household name and claimed the title of being one of the most versatile models in the industry. The busy lady spent most of the night being interviewed while looking very futuristic-chic. Jeanne Beker, noted fashion journalist, was the Emcee for the night. She looked classy and exuded confidence as she struck poses in front of the media wall while carrying a lust-worthy Chanel reissue.
During the show, Coco and other models took the stage in Todd Lynn's creations - the collection shown at London Fashion Week Fall 2010 this past February. The entire collection was cohesive with Fur covered shoulders and full-body leather as the overall theme. After great hors d'œuvres and a fantastic runway show, there was the performance by Dragonette. What was Coco like? She is exactly what you would imagine her to be: Stunning, Dynamic, and Fun! It's always great to see star power used for important causes.
